OK you clown, read this. Damage block takes preference before armor.
This means that, even if you have low armor, damage block will work npnp.
Even if you have negative armor, damage block from a melee Vanguard will still block 40 dmg. Damage block can't be reduced like armor can.
And besides, you can't really call 30 armor on top of Axe's base armor "low armor", unless the Axe was retard enough to not use Call when he is under attack.
The effectiveness of dmg block increases exponentially with your amount of armor.
This has been discussed a million times. Armor increases the number of attacks the target can take and thus the number of blocked attacks. But otherwise armor isn't related to damage block.
The hard fact is that since damage block has priority over armor, even if you have low armor or even negative armor you'll block a great deal of the damage you're taking. Also because Naga's DPS stems from her illusions, but her illusions do reduced damage (45% of her base damage + bonus damage coming from her AGI each) the end result is that a hero with melee Vanguard takes very little damage from illusions.
Let's say Naga's total attack damage is 100.
Each of Naga's illusions will be dealing 45 damage. (with Mirror Image level 4)
Vanguard will block 40 damage each time it proc's.
the target hero (Axe in this case) will be taking 45 - 40 = 5 damage from each illusion each time Vang's damage block procs. 5 damage. Virtually NOTHING.
And I'm not even accounting for Call's +30 armor which will further reduce it.
Axe won't be able to kill Slith.
After the 3 sec, Axe is sucked dry and about to die.
Dude, you making yourself your own grave.
Why do you like making a clown out of yourself? After those 3 seconds, Naga's illusions will be gone (don't forget illusions take 300% damage), and Naga herself will eat a lot of Helixes and will have suffered significant damage. After that, Hunger/Culling, and if she can't use Song by then she'll be probably dead.
Hell, Naga might even be dead already if her HP was low enough after taking a million Counter Helixes and ate a Hunger after her illusions were gone, even if she tried to escape with Song.
thanks for making yourself look like an idiot, I feel even more awesome now.
